The Insurance sector is highly competitive and considered a “traditional” industry, resistant to change and still heavily reliant on paperwork. The pressure for IT departments to embrace digitisation and technology to cut down operational expenditure is building, especially now after the Brexit, which has hit Insurance companies hard.

In 2015: 445 million business trips were taken, amounting to $251 billion worldwide.
The FAA predicts the number of air miles travelled will double in the next 20 years. The need for Insurance organisations to embrace technology and digitisation to gain competitive advantage and drive business growth is greater than ever. Many global Insurance leaders have been focused on using technology to enhance global collaboration amongst their workforce while reducing significant operational costs. Cisco, 2016

So how did London Headquartered Aspen help drive operational expenditure down across the business?

Dean Fuller, Security & Networks Operations Manager at Aspen said: “Aspen had a mature Unified communication ageing estate that was made up of multiple vendors. Apart from adding complexity from an end user perspective it burdened my team with additional cost, ownership and support administration. With our global workforce, Aspen needed a single unified communications platform to be able to connect users across our global offices. We wanted a feature rich collaboration solution that eliminated travel and drove workforce productivity and efficiency. Cisilion deployed a full, global, collaboration platform that has improved the quality of our global engagement amongst our workforce which has in turn dramatically reduced the need for travel and associated costs. “
